* RIP Todd Serious of The Rebel Spell *

This week marks 30 yrs since the release of Ed Kuepper‘s debut album ‘Electrical Storm’. We open the show with the album’s epic title track, followed by a track from the classic 1990 album Today Wonder and his acoustic reworking of The Saint’s classic ‘Brisbane (Security City).’

There is sad news to report this week as well. Todd Serious, front man of socially-conscious Vancouver punk band The Rebel Spell, was found dead last weekend following a tragic rock-climbing accident. We pay respect to Todd with two tracks from The Rebel Spell’s final two masterworks – ‘It’s A Beautiful Future’ and ‘Last Run’. RIP.
